For Sharon's Challenge

I made this card for Sharon's 1st blog challenge. We are only supposed to use only one stamp, and a sentiment if we would like. I know these aren't the colors you normally see too much of this time of the year, but I thought it would be fun to change it up a bit. I embossed the big flower from Fabulous Flowers with white embossing powder on Pretty in Pink card stock, and trimmed it. The base is Certainly Celery with a piece of Petals & Paisleys designer paper adhered to the front. The brad is from Making Memories.

Thanks so much for looking!!

Stamps: Fabulous Flowers, Hugs & Wishes
Card Stock: Certainly Celery, Pretty in Pink, Petals & Paisleys
Ink: VersaMark, Certainly Celery
Accessories: Celery grosgrain ribbon, Making Memories brad, 1/16 circle hand punch, White embossing powder, Ticket Corner punch, Stampin' Dimensionals

Wow, this card is fantastic, love how you did the flower, and those bright colors are great, we have been having rain for 2 days, not the usual for South Florida.
